Spring/Summer 2012 Hair Trends

Hey everyone!
So Spring is finally here and Summer is (slowly) on its way. And what better way to celebrate then by telling you all about the hairstyles you'll be seeing everywhere! The hair trends this season are super edgy and over-the-top but you can deffinitely find a way to make them work for you. Let me show you how you can recreate my favorites in your everyday life.

The Wet Look

Yes yes I know..you're all cringing at this. But this is totally in style this season and believe it or not you CAN rock it in everyday life! It's super easy to pull off on your own (not much expertise required here) and looks totally cute for a hot summer day. Not to mention the amount of work it would take out of styling your hair. I actually love the way they show you how to recreate this look in the April 2012 issue of Seventeen magazine. One of my favorite youtube beauty gurus, Macbarbie07, shows you on p.80 how to easily pull off this look with gel and a comb. I love it! Honestly I was not a big fan of this trend at first but I am totally digging it now. Slicked back is the way to go this season!

Dip-Dyed and Bright, Bold Color

Crazy colors are still going strong! I have to admit I don't think I will be trying this look out personally (I'm an actress and have to keep my hair a natural color) but that doesn't mean I woulden't want to! There are ways you can get around this to without permanently dying your hair a wild color. For example, there's this product called the KevinMurphy ColorBug which offers a few different colors and you literally just slap it onto your hair like chalk. It gives you a funky color during the day and you can wash it off at night! It would look totally cute from the middle of your hair down to your ends. Don't do anything permanent that you will regret once this trend DYES out (hahaha pun intended)!

The Perfect Center Part
The center part is back from the 70s in a big way! For so long we were all rocking side parts and other edgy variations but the precise middle part is back. I am really loving this trend because I think it looks so clean and sophisticated. Its a nice change from what we see on everyone these days!

Funky Retro Hair

Anna Sui’s spring/summer 2012

Precise controlled retro waves were crazy big on the runways for Spring/Summer and I love it! I've always wanted to do something totally retro with my hair and now I have the excuse to do it. Hugely teased bouffants were also everywhere and I think that it is a little easier to do then the retro waves. Love love love this trend!

Braids, Braids and More Braids!
Valentino spring/summer 2012

Braids are deffinitely huge right now (in case you haven't already noticed!). I especially noticed alot of braided updos on the runway but there were also some very intricate ponytails done with braids. This is the perfect trend for everyone because it is easy to do and you can have so much fun with it. I really love the big braid going across the front of the hair right above the forehead (the sort of halo-braid updo shown on the first picture). I will for sure be rocking this on lazy beach days and fun roadtrips!

So what's your favorite hair trend for Spring and Summer?
